Friday Favorites

Ah, it's so good to be back to my regular schedule of blogging and I do love Friday Favorites.  I have everything from food to decor today.

If you are ever in need of a quick meal ~and who isn't these days~ then you need to try the new Birdseye meal in a bag.  Everything you need is in the bag, including the chicken.  And, it is REAL chicken, white meat chicken too.  There are 3-4 different chicken meals and we tried this one recently and it was a hit.  I made coleslaw and fixed some bread and called it "good."  It's about 15 minutes from start to finish and that includes the time it takes to get the pan out of the cabinet.  I think they have beef dishes as well, but I have only gotten the chicken.We may try the beef later.

Two of my most favorite rooms in our new house are the storage rooms.  They are located right off the living areas of the house and they hold all my rubbermaid containers (all labeled of course) of seasonal decor and other decor and China and Crystal.  The shelves for the rubbermaid containers are open shelving and the other storage room is cabinets.  They have adjustable shelves and I was a happy gal when I was putting everything into them.  I had all of this type item in our upstairs storage space at our old house (except for the China) and it got real old carrying those tubs and such up and down the stairs.  Now, it's more than handy and it was at the top of my "want" list for this new house. 

 I have never done a lot of decorating for Halloween but I just could not pass up this tablerunner and chevron pumpkin and stand from the Grandinroad catalog.  I plan to put it in our eating area as just a touch of Halloween.  I have other pumpkins that I will place that will serve well throughout fall and Thanksgiving.  If you are looking for some really neat and unique seasonal decor then you might want to check out Grandinroad.

And, I saved my favorite favorite for last.....I saw this inspiration on Facebook a few days ago and it touched my heart and I thought it was well worth sharing with you.  I especially love the part, "God's not finished with your story yet."  I often forget that as long as I'm on this earth HE is still writing my story.  I think that is so awesome and so encouraging.

Have yourself an awesome weekend!


  1. We love Halloween! When Alise was in kindergarten and then again last year, we had a huge Halloween party for the entire grade at our house. Hayrides, flash light scavenger hunts, bonfires, the works! The kids love it! I plan on getting my front door ready this weekend. Paul Michael's has all their Halloween, fall, and even Christmas out!! I'm so jealous off all your downstairs storage space. All of ours is upstairs. Have a great weekend!

  2. I definitely need to try the Alfredo Chicken (in fact, I'm going to add it to my shopping list right now!). What great storage areas.

    I love the inspiration post. I'm so glad God isn't finished with me yet.

  3. Great favorites! I have some serious storage envy. Enjoy your weekend!

  4. Hi Lea! Your inspirational message spoke to my heart and was just what God wanted me to see today. Love your chevron pumpkin! Hugs!

  5. I used Voila a lot when I was working ... our favorite was the garlic one. I'd add a salad and some bread, and we'd have a nice meal. I'm a teeny bit jealous of all that storage.

  6. I love how organized you are! I think that is the best part of moving. Love your Halloween decorations too. Have a nice weekend.


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
